Met a friend here for an early lunch, sat in the enclosed outdoor patio. We were at the tail end of their breakfast service, so we each had a coffee and waited for lunch to begin. The service was good, they were fairly attentive even by Paris standards. We each had a grilled chicken salad and it was great! I... More

We received quick and friendly service and the chicken burger was one of the best I have ever had! It was relatively pricey but well with it.

Lovely little restaurant with a healthy selection of breakfast options. Had breakfast here 3 mornings in a row, chose a different option each morning and thoroughly enjoyed the food. Service is good and the staff are very friendly and obliging. The 80's music was a real bonus

Found the breakfast menu slightly odd - bacon, eggs, chips and rocket 😬 Asked for toast but we're told that they couldn't toast the bread so we asked for bread - 4 euros for a small piece of bread between us! What we had was tasty and nicely cooked but didn't feel that it was good value at over 35... More

We stopped in on our last evening in Paris--a very cold one--to grab some hot beverages. I got a Flat White and my companion had a Hot Ginger-Lemon (each were 6 Euros). There was not time for me to have a pour-over, as it was busy at that time of evening. Both drinks were tasty and the location was great,... More

Thank you for your message. We find it is nice to be 'cozy' on a cold night in Paris ;) Unfortunately the pour over takes quite a bit of time and attention and on a busy night it complicates the rest of the drinks service, if we have the time are more than happy to do one! hopefully next time...

Great gluten free place. Club sandwich was amazing, and really nice service. Not too expensive either, although they charged two euros more for gluten free bread

Arrived in Paris after 24 hrs flying. Our hotel room wasn't yet ready so we went for a little walk to relax and have a coffee. The cafe looked inviting from the outside so we sat down and ordered a cappochino and croisants. It was about 10am and I think we managed to get the last of the pastries. The... More

I stopped here for lunch, and actually spent much longer here than I intended to. The staff were very friendly and kindly made recommendations for what they thought I'd like on the menu- and they were totally correct! I had a smoothie, a burger and then one of the best lattes I've ever had. The restaurant is in a great... More

We visited having identified Loulou online and were not disappointed. I ordered a gluten free burger and the waitress (a fellow coeliac) advised me what I could and could not have. We also ordered a Caesar salad. The food was tasty, good sized portions and the service was spot on. We would happily go back for a repeat visit.
